Well, we’re starting the month of March 2020 off in the middle of a Mercury Retrograde - so how’s that treating you? It’s passing through the first degrees of Pisces right now and will go back into Aquarius on the 4th before turning direct once more on March 9tth. Once it does, that is the time for reflecting back over the occurrences that happened during the retrograde and seeing your growth through it all. In my opinion, earth is like a school for the soul. We are here to become more by learning through the living of our lives. Hopefully you’ve been making good use of the retrograde period and been wise about your life decisions, but if you haven’t...well, there’s no such thing as failure, only learning. And try not to worry so much, nobody’s keeping score but you anyway.
Early in the month, we have Venus entering her own sign of Taurus on March 4th. This is a happy place for the planet of Love to be! When Venus is here, we find ourselves engaging the physical senses, indulging ourselves and our loved ones and delighting more in life’s little luxuries. This is a great time for a little romance and perhaps some wining and dining! Venus is here all month so be sure to get a little flirty and have some fun in March!
We are preparing for the Spring time here in North America, so be sure to set your clocks ahead one hour on March 8th as Daylight Savings Time begins.
On the same day Mercury goes direct, March 9th, we have the Full Moon in Virgo. This can be a time of emotional tension and imbalance, especially for those with personal planets near 19 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. Be easy on yourself and be sure that you are taking proper care of your body, mind and spirit. Pisces reminds us that ultimately we are all one and so it is important to forgive and have compassion while Virgo reminds us to put that into practice on a regular basis through service. Is there something you need to forgive? Where in your life do you need to practice more compassion? And how can you practice that in service to others? Remember, Full Moons are about releasing stored energy to make room for more. So if there is an issue you’ve been holding on to, ask yourself if it is still serving you? Or is it time to let that go?
On March 16th, Mercury, now moving forward, enters the sign of Pisces again. This can be confusing energy for Mercury as it likes to categorize and look at all the nitty gritty details but Pisces likes to blur the lines and dissolve the details. Mercury, ruling our thought process, can express itself more through an emotional connection rather than an intellectual one when its wearing the costume of Pisces and therefore the thinking can become somewhat illogical and ethereal. I like to think of it like looking in a mirror while underwater, you can make it out but the finer details are missing. This is a time for more poetic and abstract thinking and for connecting more through emotional intelligence rather than the logical mind or through linear language. Mercury will leave Pisces next month on the 11th.
On March 19th, we have the Spring Equinox as the Sun enters the first sign of the zodiac, Aries. While the Sun is here, we find ourselves more invigorated with physical stamina and drive. This is the astrological new year as the Sun begins the journey around the zodiac one again. After the dreamy time of Pisces, this is the time to stretch and welcome in the new season with the fiery energy that is Aries! This is a time of action and doing, although I advise using this energy for projects that require short bursts of energy rather than something that requires consistent energy over an extended period of time. Aries burns bright but it burns quick, like a firework so don’t overload yourself with anything that requires more time and energy right now. Save that for Taurus season next month!
On March 21st, Saturn enters the sign of Aquarius and it feels quite comfortable here. Saturn was the traditional ruler of Aquarius (as well as Capricorn) before the discovery of the planet Uranus and so it is familiar with this energy and can express itself well here. This gives us more of a detached scientific viewpoint when it comes to the limitations in our personal lives, allowing us to examine ourselves in a less emotionally driven way. Should changes be needed, this allows you to apply some discipline to make changes that are unique and specific to your life path. Just because it worked for someone else in the past, doesn’t necessarily mean it is right for you. Saturn in Aquarius energy reminds of that. Rather than always doing what’s always been done, this energy is more open to trying something new or making alterations to old traditions to produce results more suitable to the here and now. If this applies to you, use this energy to help you embrace your path with renewed focus and determination. This is your life, live it your way.
The New Moon in Aries happens early on the 24th of March and this is the perfect time for setting some personal goals that you want to accomplish quickly. Aries, being a fire sign, is quick moving energy and wants immediate satisfaction so don’t be surprised if you find yourself or others pushing for results rather forcefully. Egos tend to get sparked during this time too, so be mindful of yours. Remember, the ego is trying to protect you but it’s rather blind to others so it’s best not to let it take the wheel. The best use of this energy is to apply it towards manifestations that don’t require much preparation and can come about rather quickly.
Finally we have Mars, ruler of Aries, entering the sign of Aquarius on the 30th of March. Mars generally governs our drive, energy and what we fight for and wish to conquer. Aquarius is the sign of the rebel, the one who questions and the one who stands up for the people. On a global scale, we might see this play out in public rallies and protests that might lead to violent outbursts if things escalate. However, when focused, this energy can help people fight for a cause with fierce determination and righteous fury. Freedom is a keyword for Aquarius and Mars is powerful energy to use for making big changes. On a personal level, you can use this energy to help you to become more passionate about your own hopes and dreams for a better world. What sort of changes can you make today that will help bring about positive change for yourself as well as the world at large?
In Numerology, March is a number 7 Universal month. This is a good time for study, speculation and research. This is also a good time for spiritual retreats and mystical interactions. There is a healing energy behind this number, one that speaks of a spiritual healing that can only take place when one goes within and finds the strength of the soul. If this is you, use this month to reconnect with that deeper part of yourself by spending a little more time in solitude and self-reflection.
Here’s hoping the month of March brings good things to you. As for me, it’s another trip around the Sun as I celebrate my birthday this month. In astrology, this is known as the Solar Return and you can bet that I’ll be running my own chart to see what the year ahead looks like for me! If your birthday is coming up, be sure to book your Solar Return reading with me so you too can see what the year has in store for you. And if it’s not, don’t forget that I now offer gift certificates if you want to give that to someone else for their birthday! :)
Astrology and numerology are both universal and personal so planetary transits and numerical influences like the ones described above will affect each one of us differently according to our own personal charts. To see how it affects yours, book your appointment with me and I’ll be happy to read it for you. I offer both in person and online/phone readings. For more details, click the button below or reply to this email and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
Take care of yourself and may the stars guide you,
